It’s easy to stop believing when all hope seems gone. But when your hope vanishes, you ought to look for Jesus more than ever because He could be right beside you. You just can’t see Him. When hopelessness overrides your faith, your eyes become blinded to what is really going on. Some of your greatest answers to some of your greatest problems come during times of your greatest discouragement.
During such times, Jesus is nearer than He’s ever been before. Maybe you aren’t seeing Him because your faith has been swallowed by fear. It is during this time of hopelessness that you are best positioned for a kingdom encounter.
When all hope seems gone, you need a kingdom encounter with the living Lord.
The Bible is indispensable for giving you back your hope and helping you experience the encounter you need most. Thus, when you can’t see Jesus, you must open your Bible and pray, “Show me Jesus.” You are to look for a Person, not just a doctrine. You want to see Christ revealed, not just Christ talked about. He told you that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Take Him at His Word. You can pray, “Holy Spirit, I am opening Your Word. Show me Jesus.”
“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2).
How can I let hope overcome my fears?
